of the civil war. and consider the battle of g gettysbu gettysburg. and with us to talk about it. mike barnicle, he was there and pulitzer winning historian jon meacham. by the way, he was cheering for lee. best selling author, doris kaerearns good win. let's begin with you, jon, why did gettysburg matter so much? >> it turned lee's army back and ended the invasion of the north and was the turning point of the war. at that point, though it was going to be difficult and bloody in the wilderness campaign and many many lives would be lost, in an historical perspective, that was the beginning of the end, as churchill might say, of the war. my sense, too, it resonates not only because of what happened there military in '63, but because of the words spoken there, what abraham lincoln did at that battlefield was to redefine the country, rededicate it, as he put it, to a jeff jeffersonian principle. when we look back on the civil war, it's fascinating to me that so much of our understanding of what it meant came from 1863, not from 1861. >> mike, you go to gettysburg and you see that line that marks th
